Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

Seriously. You might not like Amarok because of something on its UI - or because it is made with Qt - but you can't deny that it is the most full featured music player out there because it is.


That's the whole problem right there. I don't WANT features in my music player - I want it to play music, darn it! The Amarok guys are so feature and information hungry that they managed to make a music player difficult to use! That's a feat, I'll give them that.

Mind, though, that WMP and iTunes suffer from the exact same problem. In order to keep interest in iTunes going, for instance, Apple has been continiously force-feeding us compeltely useless updates to a music player that used to be so-so - now it's an absolute dog.

Wrote about this very issue on my blog this morning, by the way.
